If you are an enrolled WSU student or current WSU faculty/staff member, you have off-campus access to many of the Libraries' web-based databases and other resources via any Internet provider.
You will use WSU's proxy server. When you use the Libraries' database web pages from an off-campus location, a login screen will automatically appear when you first click the link to your selected database. This login screen will ask you to enter 1) your myWSU ID number (located on the front of your Shocker Card) and 2) your myWSU password. Once the security system has verified your status, a second screen will appear informing you that you have been verified and asking you to click on a button to continue. Once you click this button, you will be logged-in to your selected database.
Due to licensing restrictions, off-campus access is not available for some databases. For assistance in accessing and using electronic databases, help is available at the Reference Desk, by phone, chat, or email. Contact information can be found on the Ask-a-Librarian page.
If you are having trouble logging in, please check to see if you are using the right sign-on for this service. The Libraries' remote database access service uses the myWSU ID and password.
If you need additional help with your myWSU ID and/or password, please contact the Shocker Technical Assistance Center (STAC) at 316-978-HELP or firstname.lastname@example.org. For a list of their hours and additional contact information, see their website here.
If you have lost your Shocker Card, contact the Shocker Card Center to see if it has been turned in. For detailed hours and contact information, click here.
Remote access to licensed resources works best without the use of VPN or anonymizers.
